... The People Are Screwed


Ken Stiggers

Boneqweesha Jones: "Welcome to Ghetto Science Public Television's Post-Midterm Election Wrap-Up News Brief. I'm your on-the-scene reporter and host here to discuss the recent November 2014 Midterm Election Massacre. All I have to say is: One political party experienced the thrill of victory, and the other political party suffered a severe beat down. This election massacre reminded me of an election that happened 10 years ago.

"I also recall when Shaniqua and Pierre, aka the new Peaches and Herb, had a hit single about an optimistic voter disappointed with voter apathy and President George W. Bush's re-election in 2004. The song was titled 'G.W. Makes the World Go Round,' from the album 'What Happened, Y'all?'

"Shaniqua and Pierre are with me in the studio to talk briefly about voter apathy among poor and disenfranchised people.

"'G.W. Makes the World Go 'Round' is a hit single from your album 'What Happened, Y'all?' Did you ever think that 10 years later you would have to ask again, 'What really happened, y'all?'"

Shaniqua: "Like a lot of people with a burning hope for change and progress, I am very sorry that I have to ask the same question in November 2014."

Pierre: "This recent election has inspired Shaniqua and me to record a new single we believe express how poor and disenfranchised people feel about voting."

Boneqweesha Jones: "Break it down for us, brother."

Pierre: "The new single is titled: 'While Politicians Rule, The People Are Screwed.'"

It's probably true, during the two years the Democrats had the House, Senate, and Presidency, they did not feel the urge to move immigration or fix other long-standing problems. Electing more independents to the House and Senate will probably happen now. Both parties do not seem to offer realistic, practical, get the work done, people. It is a waste of money for as little as they work per year to be paying $154,000 each per year for 535 members of Congress, more for chairmen and leadership, their assistants, printing, benefits, etc.
